Thanks from a child

Dear Editor:

I would like to thank all of the brave and kind men and women who went and fought in the Vietnam War.

I went to The Wall on May 23 and saw all the people’s names who lost their lives. There were more than 58,000 people who suffered and lost their lives.

I also want to thank John Hoepfer for helping to bring The Wall to Aspen. I was very upset to see that many people died. Thank you for everything.
